After a surgical procedure at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jonov recommends undergoing a series of ultrasound assisted lymphatic massages. These massages help along your recovery and make it more comfortable. Along with increasing your own comfort after surgery, the ultrasound massages have many other benefits after surgery.
Ultrasound massages are commonly recommended after breast augmentation and liposuction procedures. With breast augmentation, the ultrasound waves and gentle massages can help prevent capsular contracture, reduce swelling, and promote healthy healing. Liposuction requires time for the skin and fat to settle into the final results, sometimes even months post surgery. Ultrasound assisted lymphatic massages can contribute to a speedier recovery, less swelling, and preventing fluid build up.
Not only do these benefits help you see better results, they can often leave you feeling relieved from discomfort you hadn’t noticed. Performed in-office by master estheticians, ultrasound guided massages can help you have a faster and more comfortable recovery. We offer two pricing packages depending on your needs. Six massages cost $400 and sixteen massages cost $500.
In the 21st century, tattoos no longer have to be a permanent fixture on the skin. The human body does breakdown tattoo ink throughout a person’s life, but this will usually only result in some minor fading and blurring. Laser tattoo removal can help enhance and speed up this process to fade or remove tattoos.
As far as the results you can expect from laser tattoo removal, it will depend on the size, color, and age of the tattoo. Older tattoos that have already experienced some natural fading will often respond better to treatment than fresher tattoos. Black ink is also easier for the laser to identify and, therefore, remove. Your master esthetician can advise you on the specifics as they relate to your tattoo.
In general, it takes between three and six laser tattoo removal sessions to see long lasting results. However, it depends upon your individual goals. Many patients use laser tattoo removal to fade older tattoos to seek cover ups, which usually takes fewer sessions to achieve the desired result than those who want to remove a tattoo altogether. Even with a full removal, some remnants of the tattoo may remain, but with enough sessions and a good result, it should be hard to tell there was ever a tattoo.
